Property and real estate

Deakin's Property and Real Estate courses provide knowledge and skills for a range of professional roles in the property industry. 

Deakin's sought-after property and real estate programs focus on high graduate employability, industry relevance and offer a global industry perspective.

As a major employment sector in the Australian economy, long-term job prospects in the property field nationally and globally are strong with good remuneration. This is linked to factors including demand for ongoing property development, the need for valuing investment assets and the presence of property in many superannuation portfolios. As a labour-intensive investment sector, the career spectrum is wide and opportunities exist in property development, valuation, optimising investment portfolios, asset management, risk analysis, leasing and many property-related areas. 

Why not start investing in your property career with Australia's most flexible program now!
